Safe To Be Me – a new resource for working with LGBT people

Age UK has worked with the older LGBT charity Opening Doors London and author Sally Knocker to produce a free resource pack called Safe To Be Me that addresses meeting the needs of older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender  (LGBT) people using health and care services.

The guide offers practical advice on providing the kind of service in which older LGBT people can feel safe to be themselves and is written for anyone working or volunteering in health, social care or the voluntary sector who would like to support older people who are LGBT.

Including real life case studies and checklists for good practice, this free resource is guided throughout by the voices and experiences of older LGBT people themselves and can be downloaded here.
